U will need help: U may need Clomid (clomiphene) or other meds but that can be dealt with when u are ready i wouldn't worry about that until u are ready , assuming you have had a proper workup of your bleeding which would include, cultures, blood work, exam and a pelvic ultrasound.

No: Your ovaries make hormones that control your uterus. If you ovulate regularly, then you'll menstruate regularly. If not, then irregular periods. Birth control pills regulate your cycles, and often make them shorter and lighter. If difficulty conceiving, then fertility medications can correct ovulation so pregnancy possible. Outdated term: polycystic ovaries. Better ovulation dysfunction.
